Burning causes some of the most traumatic injuries - painful, difficult to heal and leaving a permanent mark on people's bodies. Burn victims are not only persons who were caught in a fire. In our experience as personal injury attorneys, we helped clients who were involved in motor vehicle accidents or exposed to chemicals, hot liquids and radiation. And we know just how hard and expensive it is to recover from such trauma.
This is why we urge you to contact a Dallas burn injury lawyer at Glenn Law Firm to analyze your case and explain what type of compensation you are entitled to 817-424-5999.
We have extensive knowledge of the law and prior experience in fighting for compensation for people who suffered severe burns due to another person's fault. Our mission is to negotiate on your behalf with insurance companies and not settle for the first lump amount they will propose. Instead, we prepare our own claim for compensation and, if it is not accepted, we take the case to trial.
An experienced burn injury attorney has seen all sorts of terrible cases of burning caused by negligence, faulty machinery, and other types of liable actions. At Glenn Law Firm, we counseled clients who suffered:
During the preparation of burn injury claims, we carefully document the source of injury, the degree of burn and other relevant aspects that can help your case.
According to the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, burns are categorized into four degrees of severity:
Burn injury lawyers will attempt to find out all the details of the accident that resulted in burn injuries. In our experience, the most common situations when we can successfully conduct settlement negotiations are:
Another important aspect is the victim's degree of responsibility for the accident. In the state of Texas, the Civil Practice and Remedies Code stipulates the comparative negligence rule (defined as proportional responsibility). Thus, if you are found at fault for the accident in a proportion less than 51%, you are still entitled to fair compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering.
Your Dallas burn injury attorney will always fight to obtain a meaningful settlement for you. This does not only cover your economic losses, but also monetary damages for the suffering you will have to endure for the rest of your life.
When we prepare a claim, we include, among others:
Our experienced team conducts extensive interviews with the medical professionals involved in your case in order to estimate the recovery time and expenses as accurately as possible.
Once we know all the circumstances of the event that caused your catastrophic burns, we will contact the insurance company of the party at fault and present our claim, together with the explanation of their degree of fault. Our aim is to make this process as simple as possible and secure financial compensation for you through amicable negotiations.
If we cannot reach an acceptable agreement, our legal team will file a lawsuit and present your case before a judge and jury. We will keep you informed of the legal process every step of the way and require your input only when it is necessary.
